Not a Lot of Change, but nice Yellow-legged Gulls Views

After yesterday’s failure to locate the West Coast LBBG flock, I was pleased this morning to find c 600 birds; mostly at L’Éree with smaller numbers at Perelle. 47 of these gulls were colour ringed (all Guernsey or Alderney birds), and there was little evidence of much change amongst the flock over the past week or so. There are still relatively few juvenile LBBGs amongst the moulting adults and immatures. Two Yellow-legged Gulls (one adult and one 3rd summer+) showed very well in the early morning sunshine.
